Slice of Life#26 The Big Thank you

My big Thank you just came today. I mean I've recieved wonderful 'thank you's' from my husband and friends and kids, but this one was so unexpected it made me cry. Some people may not even consider it a thank you, but I did because I know that it was meant that way. There is a inactive sister in our ward that has been taking the missionary lessons with her common law husband and I have been participating in the lessons. It's been amazing being a part of their journey. Well their family is moving towards baptism and the temple and one of the steps is for them to get married. She cornered me after church today and asked if I would be her Matron of Honor. I was so touched that I almost started to cry. She explained that she didn't have any real family close by and not that many friends, but that she would love for me to be a part of it. The funny thing is, is that just this past week I was thinking that while I had been a bridesmaid for my two sisters weddings that I had never been a Maid of Honor of Matron of Honor, and wondered what that would be like to be chosen b/c you had a special bond with the bride. Now I know :)
It's a major honor and I'm so excited to be a part of Her happy day.

Well, I think that's one of those "Thank You's" that comes in the form of action, not words. How exciting for them and I'm glad you get to be a part of it! :)
